Penza region to preserve per-square-meter low-income housing prices on 2014 levels
Penza, 5 March 2015. PenzaNews. The Penza region authorities have no plans to increase per-square-meter prices for low-income housing built under the program “Housing for the Russian family” and intend to keep it at the 2014 levels – that is, no more than 30,000 rubles per sq. meter, said the governor Vasily Bochkarev on Thursday, March 5.
According to him, the first flats under the program “Housing for the Russian family” will be made available for purchase using social programs of the Housing Mortgage Finance Agency (HMFA) this spring.
In particular, the project of the low-rise apartment complex “Chistye Prudy” will allow to reduce actual price of the housing by 30% compared to market price, and significantly accelerate construction by employing modern technologies.
The program provides for purchasing an apartment using mortgage loans with low first payment (from 20%). If any subsidies are available, such as maternity capital or a gubernatorial housing certificate, the first payment is reduced down to 5%, or 58,200 rubles for a one-room flat of 38.8 sq. meters.
The social categories of potential lenders will be set by the Penza region Ministry of Labor. The program is oriented for economically active population and families with average income: the summary income of the family must be no less than 24,500 rubles a month for the family to enroll in the campaign.
380,000 sq. meters of Penza region low-income housing will be commissioned by 2017, the press service of the regional parliament informed PenzaNews agency.
The apartment complex “Chistye Prudy” will be comprised of 70 apartment buildings for a total of 2,900 flats and 123 sq. meters of housing.
The authorities have plans for a school for 700 persons, two kindergartens, 12 social objects, a health station, and parking areas. All housing will be furnished and turn-key ready.
